Barr admitted that she suffers from macular degeneration and glaucoma, and that eventually the condition will one day rob her of all vision.

"My vision is closing in now,” Barr explained. “It’s something weird. But there are other weird things. That one’s h...

There's a lot of great women standup comics in this competition. There's a lot of great women comics for many years. That's just something easy that people are allowed to get away with.
